Boys who claim to be girls are dominating in girls sports. And now, those same girls who are being beaten by boys in their sport are also being forced to shower and undress in the same locker rooms with them. We can thank the Obama administration and progressive Democrats for this nightmare.
In May 2016, the Obama administration issued a “guidance” to all public schools that they should allow members of one biological sex to use the showers, locker rooms, and restrooms – and stay in the same hotel rooms during field trips – as member of the opposite sex or risk losing federal funding.
A joint letter from the Departments of Education and Justice stated that students who identify as transgender must be allowed to use the private facilities that match their gender identity with “no medical diagnosis or treatment requirement.”
Now, girls in a Chicago area school district are paying the price for the open minded decision of progressive politicians pandering for votes from the LGBTQ community.
According to College Fix, a federal court has permitted a lawsuit to proceed against an Illinois school district that allows high school boys to use girls’ locker rooms, restrooms, and showers in order to accommodate transgender students.
But girls who don’t want to be seen naked by boys got bad news: The judge ruled that they have no right to “visual bodily privacy” if the government says so.
Dozens of families sued the Chicago-area Township High School District 211 three years ago due to its policy letting students as young as 14 choose to use the locker rooms of the opposite sex.
“All the students must use the restroom with the knowledge that someone of the opposite sex is present or could walk in at any time,” their lawyers at the Alliance Defending Freedom wrote in a background document on the case.
It makes the stakes clear: “If our government is powerful enough to command innocent school children to disrobe in the presence of opposite-sex classmates, then there will be little it will not be powerful enough to do.”
Township High School District 211 did not initially choose to let biological males look at females in a partial or total state of undress.
The Obama administration’s Department of Education threatened to take away federal funding in 2015 unless the school district changed its policy. It received $6 million in 2014.
Though the district already allowed the male student at the heart of the complaint to shower and dress in a private area of the girls’ locker room, federal officials said that accommodation “subjected the student to stigma and different treatment.” The district changed the policy without telling parents or students, and girls found out “when they walked into their restroom and came face-to-face with Student A,” the male student who identifies as female.
Before the girls’ locker room was opened to Student A but after the restrooms were, a non-plaintiff girl “who had been sexually assaulted previously” saw Student A’s penis, according to Alonso: “District 211 failed to investigate or remediate the situation.”
Remember, when Michelle Obama announces that she’s running for President in 2020, that her husband allowed this travesty to happen in our country when they were still raising two young daughters. It’s unconscionable that anyone thinks this invasion of our young girl’s privacy is okay.
What do you think? Should Democrats get a pass for fighting to allow boys to shower and change with young girls in their schools? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
